Cyber Security Hub Digital Summit Prepares InfoSec Leaders For Resiliency

Every year, cyber-attacks grow in both frequency and sophistication. Cyber criminals have identified new threat vectors and began to use emerging technology, such as artificial intelligence (AI), to strengthen and automate their attacks. Mega-breaches of more than 1 million records have brought attention to the battle, increased awareness within enterprise board rooms, and action plans to improve employee cyber hygiene.

As more and more CISOs become involved in the corporate strategy discussion, the Cyber Security Digital Summit examines what more can be done. What emerging technology can assist the security team in automating monitoring and response? What aspects of the organization undergoing digitalization will require change to keep assets and sensitive enterprise data safe?

Improve Cyber Security Awareness In Your Organization

Cyber security is a holistic exercise that depends on the efforts of the security team, including CISOs, CSOs, VPs of Information Security, and other lines of business (LOB). Sensitive security information must be passed along the proper channels – outward to the employee base and upward to the C-suite and board of directors. Therefore, everyone must have a knowledge base around cyber security. This doesn’t mean they must be technical wizards, but awareness could be essential in preventing a pervasive cyber-attack.

Gather And Analyze Threat Intelligence

Threat intelligence can be used in a myriad of different ways to counter an attack: during incident response to speed up the investigation, in predicting attacks and monitoring third parties, and in making decisions on long-term cyber security protocols. A few years ago, threat intelligence was just for elite security professionals, but nowadays it’s available for everyone to use.

Incident Response To Security Breaches Or Other Cyber-Attacks

The security posture of today’s enterprise is largely dependent on its resiliency – how capable is it of responding to a zero-day threat? If that cyber-attack latches on to a part of the network, is it equipped to remediate? What’s more, the question of “resiliency” is largely answered by the presence or absence of a detailed incident response plan (IRP).

Implementing A Zero Trust Architecture

An organization should not automatically trust anything inside or outside its perimeter. This is the premise of the Zero Trust security architecture. Instead, anything and everything trying to connect to its systems must be verified before granting access. As companies move from physical offices to digital and remote employees, this approach could become vital to realizing enterprise digitalization and the future of work.

Third-Party Governance And Risk Management

As companies become more digital in their operations, hackers are also more sophisticated and companies grow and change in strategy; it's time to re-examine your risk framework. With rapidly evolving technologies, including reliance on the public and hybrid cloud, what new risks need to be incorporated into the risk framework? A well-prepared risk management program enables business to accelerate goals while minimizing the potential for new vulnerabilities.
